Part of Andy Warhol’s Skulls series, Skull 158 is one of four screenprints created with vivid colors that stands in contrast to the photographic image of a human skull resting on a flat surface which this image rendures. Based on a photograph taken by Warhol’s assistant, this print is an example of Warhol’s play and interest with light, using photography as a way to experiment its relationship to an object. He angled the Skull in such a way to accentuate the forehead and cheekbone, while the eye sockets and chin recesses are deep in shadow.
